About Me

Hi there this is me. I have loved swimming all my life. So much so that I made a career out of it, first as a lifeguard, then teacher, outdoor and kayak instructor and now with the open water swimming. I have experience of teaching all age groups from pre-school age to adults. I spent over 10 years in the outdoor education sector, BA Hons in Outdoor Leadership, which included the theory behind coaching, managing risk, experiential learning and conditioning for adventure sports. Three years ago I began open water swimming, since then I have taken part in many events. I qualified as a Level 2 open water coach and this allowed me the opportunity to combine my two great passions. I can't wait to share my experience and knowledge with you.
